There’s a lot that’s grand about this listing, including the fact that you’re steps from Grand Army Plaza (with all of Prospect Park below). But the building that holds this three-bedroom condominium is the kind that turns heads. The historic Queen Anne/Romanesque Revival mansion at 70 Eighth Avenue stands out even in a neighborhood filled with architectural grandeur, with a turret and bell dome, terra cotta ornamentation and stained glass details. This 1,847-square-foot, three-bedroom duplex on the market for $1.847 million would give you a chance to roll up to that bad boy every day. You would have to keep rolling up at least a couple of flights of stairs (there’s no elevator to get to this “penthouse”) but the landmarked four-story beauty would certainly be an interesting place to call home.
Once you arrive at your beamed and turreted aerie, you’ll see that the interiors, while less historic, are also easy on the eyes. Through an entrance foyer, the spacious living room is bright, airy and modern, with blonde wood floors and matching stairs. A wood-burning fireplace makes for a cozy winter; central air conditioning makes this an all-season comfort zone.
The newly renovated kitchen continues the scandi-modern feel. It’s open to a large dining area with plenty of room for entertaining, working or actual dining.
Upstairs, a big master suite comes with a master bath and a walk-in closet.
Back on the lower level there are two more bedrooms side-by-side. In addition to central A/C there’s a vented washer/dryer, a high-performance furnace/hot water heater, and plenty of storage throughout.
This treetop condo is on a heavenly Park Slope corner, near the aforementioned park, transportation, shopping, and just about everything else we love about Brooklyn.
